innovative egg packaging
A revolutionary concept As the first packaging company in the world, DAVA Foods Packaging have developed a unique series of egg boxes in moulded plastic, specifically targeted at families with children. The eggyplay® boxes are completely unique and will certainly attract a lot of attention — both in stores and at home, where they inspire children to let their imagination run free. With eggyplay® boxes they can build large, colourful houses, castles, bridges, and much more. This is a truly value-adding egg box that gives children hours of entertainment. Safe, colourful, and fun! The eggyplay® boxes are completely child-friendly. Made from environmentally friendly moulded plastic, the boxes interconnect and can be safely stacked like building blocks. Each box contains 8 eggs and fits eggs in sizes S, M, or L.
The boxes are available in four bright colours. Each pack contains all four colours. Based on consumer insights The eggyplay® concept combines the simple, but powerful consumer insights that ’children love eggs’ and ‘children love toys’. As a result, the eggyplay® boxes make eggs even more fascinating for children
— and this promotes wholesome food as well as wholesome play: Eggs contain all minerals and vitamins (except vitamin C) as well as protein of the best kind. Their nutritional value and the learning aspects of construction play both underscore this concept’s suitability for children.

3. Recycle at the retailer Alongside the development of the eggyplay® boxes, a concept for a potential return system has been developed. The idea is that customers return the empty eggyplay® boxes to the store, like PET bottles, and the stores then return them to be reused as egg boxes. In order to implement this, a suitable workflow has to be developed in cooperation with the stores.
2. Recycle at the recycling center eggyplay® is made out of polypropylene (PP) which is recyclable.

1. Reuse at home The boxes are patented and carry the CE marking. This marking applies to products that are approved to be used as a toy. The boxes go in the dishwasher, making it safe for children to play with them. Furthermore, the boxes can be reused as a creative and fun storage solution.
Reuse or recycle eggyplay® boxes can be recycled or reused in three different ways:
